"Giving people a bed and a reason to get out of it "("Biography Abbe Pierre"). Abbe Pierre, a French Priest dedicated his entire life to help find solutions for those who were unsheltered. A peacemaker who was the true definition of kindness, in 1949 he took in two Jewish people during World War II hiding them from the Nazis. Later on, Pierre helped the homeless find shelter, his goal was to create hope for the less fortunate. He gave them a possibility of starting over and generating a better life for themselves. Pierre presented an aspiration to make the world a healthier place for people who are not as lucky as others. Throughout his heroic journey, he displayed his determination to support the poor, his intelligence to push the charity off the ground, and his generosity toward advising the homeless.
I believe Pierre's generosity, determination and intelligence was the cure for those who were unsheltered. Pierre put all his effort into supporting the homeless. He demonstrated that anyone can change a person's life for the better, that we do not need money, but we need to be in the right mindset, have determination, and obtain generosity. Abbe Pierre's determination was capable of giving the poor hope in succeeding. He gave them a reason to live in life, and roofs over their heads. He spread his wisdom throughout the community, and inspired the nation and I to recognize that all the homeless need is comfort and someone to guide them. Pierre had the capacity to look beyond people's status of wealth or social class. His ability to look beyond and inspire those in need made him a hero.
